Women and children in Unity State in South Sudan are being driven out of their villages and into the bush to escape an upsurge in fighting, according to the UN.

The Organization and other aid agencies have been forced to suspend operations because of the violence, leaving 300,000 people without the emergency relief they need.

Sebit William asked UN Humanitarian Coordinator Toby Lanzer for an update.
